“Great for exercise”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Probably one of the top places to do your jogging in BloNo. I go there every morning and great to see other families during the morning enjoying the outdoor.

“Well maintained and long running”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I can't say many negatives about the trail. It is very well maintained for running, walking, cycling, blading, etc… It runs all through Bloomington/Normal - - so it's nearly accessible from anywhere in town. Marathon training is a breeze, as is just taking a lovely stroll with your pet or children. There are SEVERAL road crossings, which is why I give it a 4 instead of 5. Unlike a "rails to trails" type of trail…this one runs right though the centers of the towns, so at some points, you're crossing roads several times in less than a 1 mile stretch. If you have to clip out of your pedals, stop your pace, or use the trail for training, this can sometimes be a nuisance depending on the time of day and time of year. Otherwise, it's a wonderful and perfect addition to a beautiful city.

“Great for running in Bloomington/Normal”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Constitution Trail is a great local setting for running or cycling. It's setting is generally fairly natural, although there are some more industrial areas. The trail does cross several busy roads, so caution is needed at times.

“Great for biking, walking and enjoying nature”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The other reviews have provided plenty of detail. I will add that Bloomington is planning to add a roadside bike lane to connect to Constitution Trail. It's about time the city realizes how much revenue the Trail generates for local businesses that are easily accessed from it.

“A city Jewel”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Constitution Trail is a park that traverses much of Bloomington-Normal...both North and South and East to West. Great for running, biking and walking. One of the best parts is going through "Uptown" Normal....coffee shops and restaurants abound...I would suggest "The Garlic Press" for coffee and lunch...but, there are several others that are worth a stop..
Since I live in Bloomington, I use this on a weekly basis, 12 months out of the year!
